Hey people!

Well I've been kind of not taking many photos as of late and it was just getting lame. So I went outside this afternoon to take some photos of my Brother, Sister and Dad.

I'm looking for some constructive-criticism for maybe improve my technique and Post processing.

All are taken with the 400D and 100mm 2.8.

1. This is my Dad just after he finished work. He said he wasn't too impressed with having to kneel down and pose but he changed his mind when he saw it.

Just *updated* removed the tag and warmed skin tones like doodlebunz suggested.

I think you did a great job on everything. I would love to see different poses though.

I have to agree with you. While all are good, number 4 really stands out to me.

I actually like the first one of your father, but with just a couple of edits. I warmed the skin a little, and cloned out (its a really fast clone, just to give you an idea) the distracting tag on his hat.

I think it should be better if you use more depth of field for #1.

So do you mean to get more of my dad in focus?

Thanks Caysnco.
